      I'm waiting to a clear sheet for completed the Bugatti...
      It's time for a new challenge!
      It will be of course another french car, the "Avions Voisin Record 1927".






      Unfortunately, the real car has been destroyed. My basis will be a re-builded one,
      with many genuine parts except the engine, the 8 cylinders has been replaced by a six cylinders.
      Take a look at:
      http://www.automobiles-voisin.fr/e_record_1927.html


      So, it will be a replica of... a replica!


      This time 100% scratch built!
      First steps, after lot of drawings:



















      And yes! No paint, no pain…

    Around the master, more...
    Some correction of course and I have to plot all the structural lignes, done.














    Aperture for the radiator:






    Parallels you know, not very easy, but with the magical tool, who said mill?







    Sometimes, Mac Gyver skills are needed...






    Thanks for watching,

    Dan.

    There's nothing wrong with a little carpentry, and Milling wood on a mill is not a problem, you get easy loose of all the overspill of oil and grease.

    Thanks gentlemen!


    Today, chassis.


    For those who like me there are few do not know how is this one, two spars
    in "U" finished at the front and the back in this way:








    Here is how I approached this problem. Four pieces that will be grafted on the rails.
    I grant you, they were not really easy to achieve!
    No photo, but I left some pucks ...






    The graft, note that only the upper part of the "U" of the spars is present, these being realized
    from two welded angles, but this will be for the future ...





    The rear:





    And all the grafts ready ...





    Thanks for watching!
    Dan.

    Chassis, more, but not the end!


    Rear...





    The central parts, bended, will receive front and rear ones.
    Note the notches free, for the final adjustment, on the jig.

    All the pieces are riveted.






    Rails are OK, for now...






    And the removable master become a jig!






    Crossbars will coming soon...

    As expected, the crossbars.
    Various and varied, there is one missing, which will come in its time when I will have
    realized ... the gearbox. Patience, then.


    An overview:




    The median crossbar, in "K", which receives the avle of the rear brakes. For the front brakes, it's already over, there is none!






    There, we enter the bright subject ... The front crossbar, which receives, from below, the front of the engine namely the dynamo.
    The Voisin engines were fixed in three points.






    L-shaped brackets will receive the radiator:





    This foundry piece originally was made on the milling machine ...



    The supports of the front blades also point their nose, but it will be the object of the next post .

    Today, front leaf spring arrangement, the goal:





    And my way...












    It's not the good widness, but the thickness is OK!









    Some pieces, for each side:
